The grand opening of the RJHS Girls Library iLab will be in January of 2016.  Mrs. Whitley, Ms. Schombs and Mrs. Haney have been busy ordering supplies, preparing the space and collecting donations in preparation for our first iLab innovators!

The iLab is a makerspace where students can design and create unique projects using electronics, crafts, recycled materials, and other odds and ends.  This blog will be a place for students to share ideas and projects created in the iLab.  The lovely library ladies will be contributing themed challenges and project suggestions to the blog, as well.  Follow us for a taste of RJHS creativity!

 

We are still accepting donations!  Please check your email or the Red & White for a more complete wish list of supplies for the iLab.
